the grateful dead listening guide has a new featured show:
http://www.deadlistening.com/2010/07/1982-october-9-frost-amphitheatre.html

The archive link is here:

I listened to this show today at work and it is indeed startlingly good. I'm not a huge 80's fan but I've been trying to expand my horizons for some time, and this is perhaps the first show I've listened to where I actually plan to listen to it again in the very near future. anyone have any thoughts?

Add the show the next night and you have 2 pretty good shows to listen to. The run from 7/31 to 8/8 is also well played and one of the peaks of 1982.

1982 used to be my favorite year until I decided to listen to more audience recordings and then 1981 became my favorite year of the 80's. I'd suggest MidnightC check out this year as well.

Sure. Yes, listen to the next day. Listen to everything from the early Brent days. Start with these great new Charlie uploads http://www.archive.org/details/gd1981-11-29.sbd.miller.108844.flac16 is a good one. The Rosemont Horizon show is great, too. Then there is the new Indiana Convention Centre. There is so much if one can drop the resistance to Brent and the eighties.

What exactly is it that makes that stinker from Pittsburgh so good?

Is it the weak set-list or the completely uninspired playing?

It's good cuz I was there and had fun. So there, party pooper.

Actually haven't listened to it since then. I'll put it on my list cuz now I'm curious, but I'm actually not very good at listening critically to shows I enjoyed at the time. Well, fortunately I'm not paid to be a GD Critic ...

i agree with you there, cliff - i've heard this show before and it did not jive with me. no offense to longnstrange though! I just find other shows from this time much better, even though I've never really fell in love with any.

I remember really liking a few of the May '81 performances, but again, never really found anything from the 80s too thrilling. I'm listening to the 10/9/82 show again and it is still really good!

The review at GDLG will provide you one persons view on why they feel the show is worthy of your attention.

11/29/81 has not been reviewed at the GDLG and there are at least 50 shows from 1981 that are stronger. A rather boring set-list, the band clearly mailed it in that night in Pittsburgh. There are many more inspired performances from the 80's than that stinker!

I haven't listened to that one yet, I'm slowing down my obsession with collecting starting with 1981, only trying to grab what is recommended or what looks good to me. I rarely make it into the 80's but if something looks good...I grabbed Pittsburgh only because of the 20+ minute He's Gone with the fat jam. And it's hard to pass up a Miller upgrade, even if it's from a year I don't listen to much (mostly 66-76 here, though I appreciate 77-81, moreso 77+78, 79+80 have a lot of moments, no doubt, but they mostly go unlistened). Otherwise it does look kinda boring.

"There is so much if one can drop the resistance to Brent and the eighties."

For me the resistance starts with Brent's 'Schroeder from Peanuts' sounding keys. That tinny, cheesy plastic toy piano sound, mixed with Bob's new 'loud, in your face, gone is that sweet tone of all years prior to fall of '78 tone' on his guitar and effects. I do like a few shows throughout the 80's - and those are where Brent is mostly on B3 and Bob has toned down his screaming effects.

MC , I agree w/ LiA , re: that beautiful weekend @ the Frost . Like a bolt out of the blue . The first set of the 10th , and the second set of the 9th , are how I listen to that week - end .
That '81 is a NYE show that holds up .
What a song to play @ your wedding ( CR&S ) ! JB is more then aggravating , as always .
